When cameras and wildlife meet, the photographer often ends up on the short end of the stick. Getting too close to deer has led to rare, but noteworthy, attacks.
A rabid deer attacked a woman last week in Ruffsdale, Penn., who stopped to take a picture of the animal, which had green foam coming out of its mouth. She batted the animal away with bags she was holding, reports the AP, and two men at a nearby restaurant rushed to help her. The men tied the deer's legs together and it died before wildlife police arrived.
More dangerous than deer attacks -- by far -- are deer collisions with cars. In the United States more than a million deer-auto collisions occur each year, causing about 200 deaths.
